While heading downtown on my bike
yesterday, my back tire was so low I thought it was gonna fishtail out from under me. I started looking for a gas station to fill it up. I'm pretty skeptical of those air machines since I once overinflated the back tire so much it burst (while I was riding it) with a POP that left my ears ringing for an hour after. The first station where I stopped was charging 50 cents. I was indignant. These machines used to be free. Then they were a quarter. I pedaled on. The second station wanted 75 cents! I stopped at five stations and quarter air was nowhere to be found. What a ripoff.
